An elegant werewolf in Edinburgh…

1788. When Lindsay Somerville, the most elegant werewolf in Paris, learns that the man who held him in abject captivity for decades is on his way to France, intent on recapturing him, he knows he must leave the Continent for his own safety. Lindsay cannot take the risk of being recaptured—he may have been free for a century but he can still feel the ghost of his old chains under his fine clothes.

… on a mission…

While he’s in Edinburgh, Lindsay has been tasked with acquiring the “Naismith Papers”, the writings of a long-dead witchfinder. It should be a straightforward mission—all Lindsay has to do is charm an elderly book collector, Hector Cruikshank. But Cruikshank may not be all he seems, and there are others who want the papers.

… meets his match

As if that were not enough, while tracking down the Naismith Papers, Lindsay meets stubborn architect Drew Nicol. Although the attraction between them is intense, Nicol seems frustratingly determined to resist Lindsay’s advances. Somehow though, Lindsay can’t seem to accept Nicol’s rejection. Is he just moonstruck, or is Nicol bonded to him in ways he doesn’t yet understand?

Note: this is the first book of a duology – the story continues and will complete in the second book, Master Wolf.

Not Dead Yet

Not Dead Yet by Jenn Burke: Review by Lost in a Book for @BMBR

Not Dead Yet (Not Dead Yet #1)

Blurb:

Dying isn’t what it used to be. 

Wes Cooper was dead. Then he wasn’t—though he’s not exactly alive, either. As an immortal not-ghost, he can transition between this world and the otherplane, which makes him the perfect thief for hire. For seventy years he’s made a “living” returning items to their rightful owners, seeing his fair share of the bizarre in the process. But he’s never witnessed murder. Until now.

His latest mission brings him more than he bargained for: a very-dead actor who is definitely going to stay that way. It’s just Wes’s luck that his ex-boyfriend, Detective Hudson Rojas, is assigned to the case. Hudson broke Wes’s heart years ago—and could again, given he’s rocking a hot silver-fox look that shouldn’t be legal.

As they work together to track down the murderer before anyone else gets hurt, it becomes clear Wes and Hudson have unfinished business. And when a secret Hudson’s been keeping threatens more than just their happiness, it might mean the end of their not-life together—permanently.

4 Stars

Not Dead Yet is a pleasant surprise with a unique feel amidst the overwhelming monotony of many paranormal romances. Don’t get me wrong, there are ghosts and some other paranormal elements that appear throughout the genre. However, this one felt different and held my attention throughout.

This is a paranormal mystery with a lot of dark things happening. It’s almost impossible to provide tidbits without revealing spoilers because so much happens and it all interconnects. Wes has the ability be alive and enter the plane of the dead. He embraces this ability as it provides a way to live without drawing attention to the fact that he never ages. Wes allows very few people in his inner circle and when he witnesses a murder while on the other plane, he ends up working with the one man who held his heart 30 years ago, Detective Hudson Rojas.

Wes is loveable and full of life (minus the dead plane parts) while Rojas’ is growly, cranky, and analytical. Rojas’ is also one of the very few people Wes has ever felt sexual attraction with (*cheers* some ACE representation). They have baggage from the past but their feelings after 30 years apart are still there even if Growly McGrowlerson runs hot/cold with Wes on the regular.

“My heart hurt and I wanted you. Not just in a sex way, but in a heart way.”

The characters are well connected and fleshed out. They have chemistry and heat but sex isn’t and doesn’t have to be the main attraction to their relationship. As both men work together to solve these murders, their chemistry, humor, and feelings sneak through without their approval. The plot is engaging, the secondary characters are entertaining and utterly endearing (🥰 Evan), and the suspense had me guessing along the way.

Towards the end, the events started becoming too OTT for my taste. Also, Rojas is a detective and he broke the CARDINAL rule (If it’s not, it should be). Don’t worry, I won’t spoil it but he did a certain something and I was left scratching my head.

There should be a trigger warning for mentions of suicide. I enjoyed Not Dead Yet and I’m hoping Evan gets his story next. Recommended.

Excerpt
 
Adam
I read over the paperwork Mystic forwarded me. It’s a standard short-term contract. One I’ve seen hundreds of time. However, nothing about this situation is ordinary.
 
I don’t take on clients, at least I haven’t in a very long time. But Mystic pleaded with me for days. Claiming I was the only one whom she trusted to make this successful.
 
The Dominatrix knows just the right buttons to push to get me to do her bidding. Bitch.
 
As I read over the application my interest spikes. This man, this sub, is unlike any I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen all types in my line of work.
He’s never subbed before. His list of limits is extensive; I can’t wait to work a lot of these ‘nos’ into ‘yeses.’
 
The club is a sanctuary for all those in the Supernatural community. Where one is free to let go and just be.
 
It was Carlos, Mystic’s sub-slash-assistant who had the idea to offer this reintroduction of BDSM to its members. A safe place for Doms and subs who spent years out of the scene to reintroduce themselves with an experienced mentor guiding their hand.
 
I was one of Mystic’s top mentors for years, but now I mainly do demonstrations and act as the club’s manager.
This is a special case.
 
And the more I dive into the paperwork the more I see just how special it is.
The reason for this wolf needing a Dom is unknown to me. I always prefer getting my submissives to open up to me the natural way, through trust and communication. Whatever his reasons are I won’t find the answers staring at his pathetic excuse of an application.
 
I need to see who he is, and just exactly what he is into. Because though I’ve dabbled in many things, there are some areas I’m stronger in than others, and the type of BDSM that is on his application is something I haven’t had much experience in. Why Mystic would choose me instead of Ken or Jenna I won’t know until I meet the man.
 
Hell, I don’t even know his preferences, the sexual orientation part of the application was left blank, which I find very interesting. Mystic is usually very strict. 
 
I print the application and list of limits, close out my email then stand.
Buttoning my suit jacket I grab the documents from the printer, then snatch the folder with the consent forms and my personal contract and head to the fourth floor.
 
*
I prefer to work with clients out of the comfort of my condo, Mystic knows this, so the fact that she checked Bane into one of the private rooms kept especially for this side of the business is intriguing. And frustrating as all hell.
The more things I learn about this case the less I like it.
 
Mystic owes me, big time.
 
I rap on the door and then turn the knob. He didn’t lock it, good. That would have gotten him punished before we even got started.
 
I wonder if Carlos warned him.
 
Pushing my way into the room I am assaulted with his scent. Aspen, smoke, and man. There’s a hint of something primal. The beast lurking within him isn’t as strong as the other scents in the room. Interesting.
 
The main room is empty, a quick sweep tells me that he bypassed the living area and kitchenette. The bedroom door is shut.
 
Setting the documents on the island I make my way to the room when the door suddenly opens and a beautiful sight fills the doorway.
 
Tall, with dark skin, muscular arms, and dark hair my new pet is the prettiest thing I’ve seen in a while.
 
His hazel eyes widened and then narrow. “Who the fuck are you?”
 
Naughty pet.
 
“That’s rule number one. Disrespectful language will get you punished. My name is Adam Archer, but you, pet, will call me either Master or Sir. Depending on how formal our play gets.”
 
“The fuck I will.”
 
That’s two. I mentally count.
 
“You are here to submit, are you not? You are here to let the control go. You are here to obey.”

Salt Magic, Skin Magic

Salt Magic, Skin Magic by Lee Welch: Review by Lost in a Book

Salt Magic, Skin Magic

Blurb:

Lord Thornby has been trapped on his father’s isolated Yorkshire estate for a year. There are no bars or chains; he simply can’t leave. His sanity is starting to fray. When industrial magician John Blake arrives to investigate a case of witchcraft, he finds the peculiar, arrogant Thornby as alarming as he is attractive. John soon finds himself caught up in a dark fairytale, where all the rules of magic—and love—are changed.

To set Thornby free, both men must face life-changing truths—and John must accept that the brave, witty man who’s winning his heart may also be about to break it. Can they escape a web of magic that’s as perilous as love?

4.25 Stars

Well, Well, Well. This is a captivating (and a tad gruesome) read. Sign me up for immediate membership into Lee Welch’s fan club. I’ll patiently await my official VIP card, please and thank you.

Lord Thornby is trapped on his father’s estate. Still. After being kept there somehow for well over a year, the days are bleeding together and he’s barely keeping a hold on his sanity. Thornby’s father and step-mother arrive back in town and there’s an increase in the already peculiar happenings taking place around the Yorkshire estate. Luckily, John Blake shows up to investigate some unexplainable magical happenings.

Thornby and Blake have an immediate dislike and are forced to work with each other to make sense of what is holding Lord Thornby hostage. Their dislike changes fairly quickly and a necessary companionship is formed. They have great chemistry, entertaining banter, lots of heat, and are frequent passengers on the orgasm express. Apparently danger turns them on…

Salt Magic, Skin Magic is a historical paranormal romance that is very well done. I was enthralled from the very beginning and didn’t want to stop until the end. Once the plot picked up, I was on edge until the end. There are many PNR/fantasy elements taking place. Some of them made sense and other elements weren’t fully explained and left me wondering if it’s slightly lacking world building is setting up another book? I’d definitely read it.

I wanted to give it more stars but I needed more at the end. There’s a HFN but where do they go from here? That could be me just being picky but I didn’t feel completely settled at the end. Still, very enjoyable and definitely recommend.

Ravensong (Green Creek #2)

Ravensong (Green Creek #2) by TJ Klune: Review by Lost in a Book for @BMBR

Ravensong (Green Creek, #2)

Blurb:

Gordo Livingstone never forgot the lessons carved into his skin. Hardened by the betrayal of a pack who left him behind, he sought solace in the garage in his tiny mountain town, vowing never again to involve himself in the affairs of wolves.

It should have been enough.

And it was, until the wolves came back, and with them, Mark Bennett. In the end, they faced the beast together as a pack… and won.

Now, a year later, Gordo has found himself once again the witch of the Bennett pack. Green Creek has settled after the death of Richard Collins, and Gordo constantly struggles to ignore Mark and the song that howls between them.

But time is running out. Something is coming. And this time, it’s crawling from within.

Some bonds, no matter how strong, were made to be broken.

I may have damaged some ear drums in my squealing excitement following the news that Ravensong was in the works. Mark and Gordo had so much angst, anger, and longing going on in Wolfsong that I just knew their journey would be hard. However, this is TJ we’re dealing with, so hard is an understatement for the mountains Mark and Gordo have to climb to find a bit of peace.

So many feels.

It kicked my ass.

My face leaked.

It hurt. So. Good.

Ravensong is intense, fast paced, and gruesome. It doesn’t let up until the end.

feeling.gif

Mark and Gordo were everything to each other once upon a time. We get a glimpse of the love and then heartbreak between them as they’re separated. The anger left in its wake is almost tangible and long lasting. With everything going on in Green Creek and Gordo being the Bennett’s witch again, Mark and Gordo have to put aside their differences for the sake of the pack. Slowly, cracks start to develop in their hardened walls and the journey to each other is painful but satisfying to “watch.”

Wolfsong continues to be my #1 but this isn’t too far behind. We don’t get the overly emotional displays that we had from Joe and Ox. The life stages are different and the men are hardened by tragedy and betrayal. I went through the whole read knowing it wouldn’t be as lovey dovey or swoon worthy and I was right… until 2 sentences proceeded to melt my heart and make me giddy. Side note: The early days when Mark was *wooing* Gordo had be grinning like a fool.

wolfraven.jpg

Although this book highlighted the relationship between Mark and Gordo finding their way to coupledom, it’s so much more. The Pack is a major element and their growth towards cohesion and being battle ready takes center stage. I have major heart eyes for all the characters, the family they’ve built, and the strength each possesses no matter their species. With being such a serious book, there are many opportunities to take a much needed breath with the crazy antics and conversations that pop up. I’m excited to see how these relationships evolve throughout the series.

Ready for one hell of a rollercoaster ride with the Bennett’s? Grab your blanket, glass(es) of wine, and a bottle of antacids. Definitely recommended.

P.S. It wouldn’t hurt to revisit Wolfsong as a refresher before diving in because it references things that we *should* know already but may not remember.

P.P.S. I’m ready for Kelly and Robbie. Like, yesterday. 😍😍😍

P.P.P.S(is this even a thing?). I’m ready for Carter’s story tomorrow (Too soon?). Please and Thank you.

The Werewolf’s Fae Mate

The Werewolf’s Fae Mate by Liv Rider: Review by Lost in a Book for @BMBR.

The Werewolf's Fae Mate

Blurb:

He never expected his mate to be fae. Now he has to choose between his heart and his pack.

When mixed-blood werewolf Mahon comes across powerful fae magic in a nightclub, dealing with the threat is a chance to prove to his new pack where his loyalties lie. But the threat turns out to be a gorgeous, wide-eyed college student who’s never heard of the supernatural world. After they’re attacked by bloodsucking vampire bats, he takes Oscar and his small, angry cat home for their own protection. He’ll definitely tell his pack about Oscar…later.

Abandoned as an infant, Oscar’s always wondered where he came from—he just never expected the answer to include pointy ears, magical powers, and evil forces trying to kill him. Oscar knows he shouldn’t rely on Mahon for help, but it’s hard to resist when a six-foot-six werewolf literally sweeps you off your feet. The key to Oscar’s past might lie with the local fae court—where werewolves aren’t welcome.

Oscar and Mahon are mates—but how can they be together when it might cost them both everything?

The Werewolf’s Fae Mate is an m/m paranormal werewolf/fae romance with a HEA and no cliffhangers.

color.jpg    color.jpg    color.jpg    color.jpg

3 Stars

The Werewolf’s Fae Mate is a short, straight forward paranormal read with heat and action.

As the blurb states, Oscar is a normal college student, until he realizes he’s anything but a normal college student. Unfortunately for Oscar, that realization happens right around the time a vampire and vampire bats come calling. Luckily for him, Mahon (a werewolf) also comes calling and Oscar is thrust into a world that he once believed was only in storybooks.

With the danger lurking around Oscar, he ends up staying with Mahon as they try to figure out the specifics about his missing past. One thing leads to another quickly and it’s all growly, mine, mates, sex, thinking about sex, and more sex. Oscar is clueless, goofy, and endearing. I wish we had more of his personality without being clouded by lust and overshadowed by the main drama of miscommunication. There is insta-love as usual in a mates situation and they ride that train all the way to an HEA.

While Mahon and Oscar are cute together, the relationship and world building is lacking IMO. I liked the premise and the characters but everything felt so rushed. Oscar has a cat named Marshmallow and I didn’t understand why there was so much emphasis placed on her. I kept waiting for *something* to happen. It didn’t. Still, I’ll definitely keep Marshmallow on the table for my future pet’s name.

If you’re new to m/m paranormal, this could be a good starting point for you. Hopefully the world building comes together in the next book. I’ll give Aidan (Mahon’s brother) a shot if he gets a book. Recommended if you’re looking for a quick and easy paranormal.

The Sumage Solution

The Sumage Solution by G.L. Carriger: Review by Lost in a Book

The Sumage Solution (San Andreas Shifters, #1)

Blurb:

Everything you wanted from a sexy gay werewolf but were afraid to read. 

Max fails at magic, relationships, and life. So he works as a sumage, cleaning up other mages’ messes. The job sucks and he’s in no mood to cope with redneck biker werewolves. Unfortunately, there’s something irresistible about the sexy muscled Beta visiting his office for processing.

Bryan is gay but he’s not out. There’s a good chance Max might be reason enough to leave the closet, if he can only get the man to go on a date.

Everyone knows werewolves hate mages, but Bryan is determined to prove everyone wrong, even the mage in question.

NYT bestseller Gail Carriger, writing as G. L. Carriger, presents an offbeat gay romance in which a sexy werewolf with a white knight complex meets a bad boy mage with an attitude problem. Sparks (and other things) fly.

The San Andreas Shifter books stand alone and do not have to be read in any particular order.

Delicate Sensibilities?

This story contains M/M sexitimes and horrible puns. If you get offended easily, then you probably will. The San Andreas Shifter stories include blue language, dirty deeds, and outright admiration for the San Francisco Bay Area. Not for the faint of heart/mouth/tongue…

4 Stars

I’m really glad I FINALLY got this off my TBR. It’s been carrying one of the top spots since it came out last year. Hopefully, prior to cracking this open, you have realized there’s a prequel. I didn’t pay too much attention to that little tidbit when I dove in and was thoroughly confused. Especially because I was listening to the audio and all these names were dropping like I should know them. So, I *highly* recommend you read the prequel first (it provided a lot of clarity once I read it and restarted this one).

What happens when you get a Beta werewolf and a mage with a huge chip on his shoulder? Epic one-liners, snark galore, new levels of sassiness, and some smokin’ smexy times.

“Really, Max? Fizzy jizz?” “I see werewolves do have a heightened sense of taste. It’s a mage thing.” “The champagne of cocks?” “See how I spoil you?”

pop1.gif

“You got all that from prostate wand?” Alec smiled stiffly, no canines. “It’s like a tarot deck. You can tell a lot about a man from his toy collection.”

Bryan is calm, loyal, large, and protective of those in his life. He’s the perfect blend to balance out Max’s snarky, outwardly fuck-it attitude. Max has a lot of baggage from his childhood and Bryan helps soothe his hurts. I really enjoyed them together, appreciated the growth Max made, and swooned over Bryan’s solidness. They did some work to get a HEA and the journey was believable.

This book has a diverse and entertaining cast of secondary characters from drag queens to fiery kitsunes. I’m eager to read other stories about the werewolves in Bryan’s pack and see how they possibly pair up with others that were introduced. They’ve built a patchwork family with love, humor, and lots of feels.

For some reason (besides the prequel issue, which I sorted within the first 5%), it took some time to get into this book and hit my stride. I’ll chalk it up to some RL craziness and once 50% hit, the pace picked up. There are some missing explanations about different elements that were mentioned throughout. Towards the end, I was happily chugging along getting all warm and gooey and then I turned the page, gasped and went all “where’s my damn epilogue?” That’s more my fault and reading preferences with being greedy and wanting to *see* the HEA.

The Sumage Solution is an enjoyable and unique take on shifters and mages. The snark alone makes it worth reading. Recommended.

”Why fight it just for what the world thinks we should be? I’d rather fight the world.”

Note about the narration: I started out doing audio only, but had to switch to reading for a bit and then returned to audio. I recently listened to Kirt Graves read another shifter book which was almost 19 hours long and I couldn’t stop hearing the voices from the other pack. The narration for this one was done well, the characters differentiated, and I was eventually able to hear Bryan and Max through *their* voices. The audio is recommended.

 

Once Upon A Wolf

Once upon A Wolf by Rhys Ford: Review by Lost in a Book for @BMBR

Synopsis:

Once Upon A Time, There Was A Wolf….

Gibson Keller’s days are fairly routine: wake up early, get some work done, drink lots of coffee, and take care of Ellis, his older brother stuck in wolf form after coming home from the war. It’s a simple life made up of long runs on two legs—or four—and quiet evenings…. Until Ellis chases a handsome man off a cliff and into the frozen waters beside their cabin, changing Gibson’s life forever.

For Zach Thomas, buying an old B&B is a new start. Leaving behind his city life, he longs to find peace and quiet, and hiking the trails behind his property seems safe enough—right up to the moment an enormous black wolf chases him into a lake, nearly drowning him. Discovering werewolves are real astounds him, but not as much as the man who rescues him from the icy water then walks into Zach’s heart as if he owns it.

Loving a werewolf—loving Gibson with all his secrets—has its challenges but Zach believes their love is worth fighting for, especially since his heart knows the big bad wolf is really a prince in disguise.

2.5 Stars

I LOVE Ellis. I love his wolfish shenanigans, the mystery of his story, and how far he came throughout… the problem is that it isn’t Ellis’ story. I think?

huh.gif

Gibson is a wolf shifter that lives with his brother (Ellis) in a mountain cabin. One day Ellis decides to play a game of chase with an unsuspecting stranger… except the stranger is terrified and slips down the mountain. Luckily, Gibson is able to rush to the aid of the badly injured Zach.

Zach is the new neighbor that purchased a bed & breakfast and he connects with Gibson *super* fast. Well, maybe not a connection but they are attracted to each other right away… even badly injured, Zach is wanting to mount Gibson (which I would totally believe if this was a mates type shifter book). It just seems a foregone conclusion that because they are the only two men within miles, they would end up together. I get it, last man on Earth and all- but it didn’t seem authentic IMO. Unfortunately there isn’t much else to the Zach and Gibson show. The romance/connection between Gibson and Zach was put on the back burner as all focus went to Ellis. Because of this, the relationship felt forced.

As the synopsis mentioned, Ellis is stuck in his wolf form to cope with the nightmares that never leave. This book provides in-depth coverage of Ellis’ status, the growth he makes, the danger he gets in, and the care he receives from Zach and Gibson. Ellis and Zach form a special bond that I believed and a connection I felt. It’s a damn shame it wasn’t their story.

shrug.gif

One of the things I adore about shifter stories is the possessiveness. I love the growly mine and the unapologetic need to be near the other and the ultimate desire to claim them. With this book, any time Gibson showed a hint of possessiveness, he went apologetic. *sad face* There wasn’t much heat on page and I was glad for it. Without the connection between the MCs, more sex would have just felt out of place to me.

I can’t recommend this book for the MCs but I was a fan of Ellis and if he’s getting a story, then reading this would be necessary. I’ll continue on this series *only* if Ellis gets his official story.

Joe. Ox. The Bennetts. Pack.

I LOVE this book to pieces. I could read it over and over and probably never get bored. Alright, maybe that’s a bit cheesy but my love knows no bounds. I’ve been meaning to do a reread and decided to do an audio “read” instead. This is a super heavy read mixed with much joy, hope, and humor. Joe and Ox just make me happy whether it’s candy canes, and epic, and awesome or walking into walls when Ox’s attractions become fully realized. I love the pure love they have for each other that started in its simplest form and grew into something impossibly beautiful.

I’m not sure why I didn’t write a full review for this when I initially read it but I’ll skip out on that now since there have been some amazing reviews already written.

This was narrated by Kirt Graves. When I listened to the sample, I was hesitant. Sometimes you dig a voice, sometimes you don’t and I didn’t when I heard the sample. I was worried because this is an 18+ hour book and that’s practically marriage proposal level commitment and I almost became a runaway bride. But, I decided to give it a shot because I needed more Joe and Ox in my life and I’m really glad I did. The voice grew on me pretty quickly. The voice of Joe as a young boy is exactly how I imagined it when he first ran into Ox. The sweetness, wonder, and awe of Joe’s feels for Ox came through in this narration. The 18+ hours flew by, I’m practically married to Kirk Graves at this point, and I got to spend time with Joe and Ox. *wink*

In lieu of wedding gifts, the bride and groom(I’ll speak for him) recommend that you listen to the audio. (Yep, can’t hide my crazy)

Obviously recommended.
